NAME ^

Cache::Repository::Filesys - Filesystem driver for Cache::Repository

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $rep = Cache::Repository->new(
      style => 'Filesys',
      # options for the F::R driver
    );
  $rep->add_files(tag => 'groupname',
                  files => \@filenames,
                  basedir => '/tmp',
                  move => 1,
                 );
  $rep->add_filehandle(tag => 'anothergroup',
                       filename => 'blah',
                       filehandle => $fh,
                       mode => 0755);
  $rep->set_meta(tag => 'groupname',
                 meta => {
                     title => 'blah',
                     author => 'foo',
                 });

  $rep->retrieve(tag => 'groupname', dest => '/newdir');
  my $data = $rep->get_meta(tag => 'groupname');

DESCRIPTION ^

Caching in a locally-mounted filesystem. Eventually, this will include NFS-level locking, but for now, this module assuming only a single process accessing the repository in write mode at a time.

FUNCTIONS ^

new

Cache::Repository::Filesys constructor.

    my $r = Cache::Repository::Filesys->new(
                                            path => '/some/path/with/enough/space',
                                           );

or

    my $r = Cache::Repository->new(
                                   style => 'Filesys',
                                   path => '/some/path/with/enough/space',
                                  );

Parameters:

path

The path in which to store the repository.

clear

If true, clear the repository (if it exists) to start anew. Existing files and meta information will all be removed.

compress

The compress option is ignored in the current version.

dir_mapping

This is a code ref which is given a tag name, and maps it to a relative directory that should contain the tag. The default is to use an MD5 hash of the tag, and use that to create a directory hierarchy for the tag's contents. You can override this to, for example, provide a more-easily-debuggable path such as:

    dir_mapping => sub {
        my $tag = shift;
        $tag =~ s:/:_:;
        $tag;
    },
sector_size
symlink_size

Options for Filesys::DiskUsage. Defaults to the blocksize of the directory holding the repository if Filesys::Statvfs is installed, or just simply 1024 if Filesys::Statvfs is not installed.

Use 1 to get exact numbers for total file size, but this is rarely what you really want (unless you're planning to put it in a tarball).

Returns: The Cache::Repository::Filesys object, or undef if the driver failed to initialise.

get_meta

Overrides Cache::Repository's get_meta function

set_meta

Overrides Cache::Repository's set_meta function

clear_tag
add_symlink
add_files =item add_filehandle
retrieve_with_callback
get_size
list_files
list_tags

See Cache::Repository for documentation on these.
